Butter & Scotch is a honky-tonk with a difference, specializing in desserts and cocktails. Strains of funk and gospel accompany visits here, and a neon sign declaring "Eat Pie" hangs over the swinging doors that lead to the kitchen. Partners Keavy Blueher and Allison Kave funded their merry venture through a Kickstarter campaign, allowing them to buy professional bakers' ovens and a liquor license. The rollicking corner space is convenient to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden and the Franklin Avenue subway stop. At happy hour certain drinks and desserts are discounted, but it's a happy scene here pretty much all the time. In addition to frosted layer cakes, fresh made caramel corn and mini cupcakes, this sweet spot offers savory items like pimento cheese with Triscuits, cheese puffs and salty sesame-chile popcorn.
